Isaac Randozzi's 10 Year Shots
    Tuesday, 21 December 2010 /// Written by Trippe

Our buddy Isaac Randozzi emailed over some film shots from our 10 year show awhile back. They got lost in the shuffle and reappeared today. Well, here they are. A bit late... ~view all

Speaking of Isaac, he wrote a feature on Fecal Face for Color Magazine. We've yet to read it, but we assume it's a good one.

Oliver Vernon - 10 Yrs. of Fecal Face
    Wednesday, 06 October 2010 /// Written by Trippe

Well, Fecal Face's 10 Year Show is coming to an end with a closing this Friday, Oct 8th featuring live music from Tommy Guerrero & friends at 8:30pm (RSVP here). The evening coincides with 6th Street's art walk 2 Blocks of Art. Our closing at The Luggage Store runs from 7-10pm.

We wrap up short interviews with artists participating in the show with the mega talented Oliver Vernon who now lives in Northern California.

What were you up to in the year 2000?

My dj friends and I had just built and opened Halcyon in Brooklyn, a dj-lounge/cafe/gallery/mod furnishings shop. I was djing around New York and painting murals in clubs, bars and restaurants. I started doing live paintings at Giant Step parties, which were paid gigs (unheard-of at the time.) Through Halcyon I met a dealer who put me in my first New York group show at the gallery in the Gershwin Hotel as well as the Armory Show.

How has your work changed in the last 10 years?

Painting is a reflection of life, an expression of any given moment in time, it is autobiographical. As times pass and change, so do i and so does the painting. In certain ways I look at what i'm doing now and think that it's basically the same as I was doing 15 years ago, only seasoned and textured with the accumulated experiences of life. The basic principles have remained in tact through the years, but I have pushed evolution in the way I approach and handle the materials, and how the different painting ideas are engaging the surface and each other. I am now much more sensitive to nuance and subtlety, and have a greater consideration for how the different layers are interacting.

What did you think 2010 would be like back then?

I wasn't considering it much actually.

Travis Millard - 10 Yrs. of Fecal Face
    Friday, 01 October 2010 /// Written by Trippe

We have a few interviews with artists who are in Fecal Face's 10 Year Show (closing show Fri, Oct 8th) that we ran out time to add up on the site. Well, here's one with our good friend, LA based artist and amazing drawer, Travis Millard.

What were you up to in the year 2000?

I was an enthusiastic apple-cheeked young man smoking hay and wandering around Lawrence, Kansas.

How has your work changed in the last 10 years?

I used to mess around with more paint and larger pieces... It was all pretty scattered. I think it's grown over time, and still remains fairly scattered, but maybe it's tightened up and/or evolved a bit more.

What did you think 2010 would be like back then?

It's a lot like I thought it'd be but with less hovering then I predicted.

When you first heard of Fecal Face what did you think about it?

I thought, "this is the site for me"... then saw it and thought, "Oh, art. This is the site for me".

Chronicle Story on Fecal Face
    Thursday, 09 September 2010 /// Written by Trippe

The San Francisco Chronicle published this nice article on Fecal Face focusing on Mars-1 and Jeremy Fish... Wait till you see Mars piece that's 12 feet by 7 feet. Wowza.

Fish also made the above 10 Years of Fecal Face tees which we'll have onsale at the after party tonight and then online for sale next week.

The after party @Mezzanine is a short walk from the Luggage Store. Doors at 9pm. $8 donation, but no one turned away for lack of funds.

 

Tiffany Bozic - 10yrs of Fecal Face
    Wednesday, 08 September 2010 /// Written by Trippe

We continue interviewing artists (view more) who are in FECAL FACE DOT COM 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY SHOW -- Opening Friday September 10th @The Luggage Store Gallery (6-8pm) with After party @Mezzanine (9-2am) featuring live musical performances by Kelley Stoltz, Sonny Smith, and Ty Segall - w/DJ Ted Shred.

Man, what to say about Tiffany Bozic? I guess to start how nice to have a really close friend whose also a very very talented artist. Kind of merging work and personal life, but art is that way I guess... We've been fortunate to have met Tiffany when she first moved to SF from Ohio. It was a group show in like 2001 when we first saw her work. And no disrepect to the other artists in the show, but Tiffany's work shined above, and it's been wonderful watching her work mature over the years and to have her participate in the 10 year show is more than fitting.

What were you up to in the year 2000?

Around 2000 I began painting full time and exhibiting my work in SF. I had just dropped out of Art School and moved here the year before from Columbus, OH. I met FF founder John Trippe at a show that I helped organize with a number of local artists and quickly began showing my paintings in some of the group shows that John put together as well as a couple at Upper Playground.

How has your work changed in the last 10 years?

It has changed as much as I have! I think in the beginning, like a lot of artists just starting out, I was influenced by some of the artists that were showing on the west coast. There are too many to name, some of them became friends and were very supportive and helpful to me. In 2002 I moved back to Cleveland for a spell to reset my buttons and establish a cohesive collection of work that I made for a show at 111 Minna, SF. I think I am still working towards the same general theme, but my interest in detail and craftsmanship has increased. Now I look directly to my relationship to Nature and the people that I love to inspire me.

What did you think 2010 would be like back then?

To be honest I didn’t think I would make it past 30. I was just trying to scrape together the means to make it from one day to the next with no thought for the future. Now I hope I live to see my beautiful wrinkled hands at 80, with a large portfolio of paintings that I made with them to show my grandkids. I feel like it will take a lifetime to make a great painting, and I am still just scratching at the surface.

Maya Hayuk - 10yrs of Fecal Face
    Tuesday, 07 September 2010 /// Written by Trippe

We've been posting interviews with artists in the FECAL FACE DOT COM 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY SHOW -- Opening Friday September 10th @The Luggage Store Gallery (6-8pm) with After party @Mezzanine (9-2am) featuring live musical performances by Kelley Stoltz, Sonny Smith, and Ty Segall - w/DJ Ted Shred.

NYC based Maya Hayuk has been a friend of Fecal Face for many years- so long in fact, that don't even remember when and how we met, we're just glad we did and that she was available to be included in the show. Maya shows her work across the globe and does many commissions featuring her mural work. For the 10 Yr. Show, Maya will have a site specific mural on the walls at The Luggage Store. She starts work on it today, actually. Excited as we've never seen her work on a mural in person.


What were you up to in the year 2000?

I lived with Kyle Ranson, John Dwyer, Molly Harvey & Gary Wertz (not all at once, but throughout that year) at Lake Sleepytown on Sanchez st. between 16th & market in a building infested with raccoons and the world's meanest slumlord and cheapest rent ever. I was painting, quietly, in the pantry of my kitchen not really sharing my work in public much/ at all. I was photographing lots and lots of bands & printing at In Color II. A bunch of my friends and I started a skate-surf-snowboarding website/ magazine called withitgirl, which I art-directed, so I was learning to stand on moving boards, and learning photoshop & html. I worked the door on Wednesdays at Minna, and I spent most of my time down in the warehouses on Illinois street.


How has your work changed in the last 10 years?

I hope it's gotten better. it's become harder and easier to make. I understand my direction more and it's gotten way larger in scale, but I still feel like I am at the very beginning of learning a lot, lot more.


What did you think 2010 would be like back then?

Futuristic & remote-controlled & everyone on segways.

We've been posting interviews with artists participating in our FECAL FACE DOT COM 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY SHOW -- Opening Friday September 10th @The Luggage Store Gallery (6-8pm) with After party @Mezzanine (9-2am) featuring live musical performances by Kelley Stoltz, Sonny Smith, and Ty Segall - w/DJ Ted Shred.

We've been featuring this SF based Kelly Tunstall work for years. We've been friends with Kelly for years as well. She's currently showing at Giant Robot in NYC and is a new mom with fellow artist Ferris Plock. Wonder if little Brixton will rebel against his artistic parents and go on to become an accountant... Somehow we doubt it. Would be so great to grow up immersed in visual art.

What were you up to in the year 2000?

Drinking, painting and going to school. Reverse order.

How has your work changed in the last 10 years?

Uh- I think essentially it's the same feeling, but my techniques have gotten richer and bigger.

What did you think 2010 would be like back then?

Never thought about it.

SF Weekly's Nice Coverage
    Monday, 06 September 2010 /// Written by Trippe

Thanks to the SF Weekly for the nice write up on our 10 Year Anniversay Show opening on Friday!

It’s strange that it took years for the visual art world to establish its online voice. Despite a plethora of image-sharing services such as Flickr, Tumblr, and ffffound, sites that meaningfully document the art scene have been few and far between. Over the past decade, San Francisco’s Fecal Face has risen to the top of the heap, providing the art community with its very own Pitchfork or Gawker Media through consistently strong news coverage, a dependable calendar, and tart criticism. -read on

 

Sylvia Ji - 10yrs of Fecal Face
    Friday, 03 September 2010 /// Written by Trippe

We continue running short interviews with artists participating in FECAL FACE DOT COM 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY SHOW -- Opening Friday September 10th @The Luggage Store Gallery (6-8pm) with After party @Mezzanine (9-2am) featuring live musical performances by Kelley Stoltz, Sonny Smith, and Ty Segall - w/DJ Ted Shred.

Hot off the heals of her NYC solo show a month back, Sylvia Ji lives and works in LA and is soon off to Melbourne, Australia to speak at Semi-Permanent Sept 17th. Before she heads across the globe she'll be at the opening of the Fecal Face 10 Year Show, and you get to see her incredible works in person. If you see her at the after party @Mezzanine, buy her a drink. She's an amazing person and gifted artist, and we're very pleased that she's participating in our show.

What were you up to in the year 2000?

I was just entering the Academy of Art in SF, totally green behind the ears and ready to start a new chapter.

How has your work changed in the last 10 years?

10 years ago, I didn't know much about color, composition, mediums, pretty much all of it except that I loved to draw. I'm still learning, but my work has definitely evolved to become tighter in both technique and concept.

What did you think 2010 would be like back then?

2010 seemed like so far away back then, and now here it is, a decade later. Technology of course was going to be faster and smaller, but who would have thought smart phones and social networking would be so prevalent.

Megan Whitmarsh - 10yrs of Fecal Face
    Thursday, 02 September 2010 /// Written by Trippe

We continue running short interviews with artists participating in FECAL FACE DOT COM 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY SHOW -- Opening Friday September 10th @The Luggage Store Gallery (6-8pm) with After party @Mezzanine (9-2am) featuring live musical performances by Kelley Stoltz, Sonny Smith, and Ty Segall - w/DJ Ted Shred

Los Angeles based artist Megan Whitmarsh grew up in the 70's and 80's, and, like many of her generation, uses the visual noise of her youth as inspiration, rather than the history of painting. She makes drawings, comics, hand-embroidered pieces and soft sculptures.

Her themes can best be visually described as scenes of fantasy characters existing amongst the detritus of the modern world. They can best be conceptually described as the artist's attempt to reconcile the ataxia of the modern world with an optimistic vision of the future dictated by an internal logic and supernatural iconography.

Whitmarsh sees her current artistic process as a slightly evolved continuation of her childhood practices of illustrating Buffy Ste Marie songs and making comic books about rabbits watching Mork and Mindy. -20x200.com

What were you up to in the year 2000?

My husband and I moved from Brooklyn to Los Angeles stopping on the way in New Orleans (where we met) to play a last show with our band "The Hong Kong" in New Orleans on January 31, 1999.

How has your work changed in the last 10 years?

In some ways it has not changed in 30 years!-- I made a ceramic taco in 1979 and in 2006 I made one out of fabric. But in general I would say I have expanded the realm of how I make things and am somehow at the same time both less meticulous and more discerning. I make less stuff but it is more ambitious.

The Death of the Artist—and the Birth of the Creative Entrepreneur
Wednesday, 21 January 2015 10:34

When works of art become commodities and nothing else, when every endeavor becomes “creative” and everybody “a creative,” then art sinks back to craft and artists back to artisans—a word that, in its adjectival form, at least, is newly popular again. Artisanal pickles, artisanal poems: what’s the difference, after all? So “art” itself may disappear: art as Art, that old high thing. Which—unless, like me, you think we need a vessel for our inner life—is nothing much to mourn.

Hard-working artisan, solitary genius, credentialed professional—the image of the artist has changed radically over the centuries. What if the latest model to emerge means the end of art as we have known it? --continue reading

NYPD told to carry spray paint to cover graffiti
Wednesday, 21 May 2014 10:37

nyc_graffitiNYC --- A new graffiti abatement program put forth by the police commissioner has beat cops carrying cans of spray paint to fill in and cover graffiti artists work in an effort to clean up the city --> Many cops are thinking it's a waste of resources, but we're waiting to see someone make a project of it. Maybe instructions for the cops on where to fill-in?

The NYPD is arming its cops with cans of spray paint and giving them art-class-style lessons to tackle the scourge of urban graffiti, The Post has learned.

Shootings are on the rise across the city, but the directive from Police Headquarters is to hunt down street art and cover it with black, red and white spray paint, sources said... READ ON

Alison Blickle @NYC's Kravets Wehby Gallery

Los Angeles based Alison Blickle who showed here in San Francisco at Eleanor Harwood last year (PHOTOS) recently showed new paintings in New York at Kravets Wehby Gallery. Lovely works.


Interview w/ Kevin Earl Taylor

We haven't been featuring many interviews as of late. Let's change that up as we check in with a few local San Francisco artists like Kevin Earl Taylor here whom we studio visited back in 2009 (PHOTOS & VIDEO). It's been awhile, Kevin...


Peter Gronquist @The Shooting Gallery

If you like guns and boobs, head on over to the Shooting Gallery; just don't expect the work to be all cheap ploys and hot chicks. With Make Stuff by Peter Gronquist (Portland) in the main space and Morgan Slade's Snake in the Eagle's Shadow in the project space, there is plenty spectacle to be had, but if you look just beyond it, you might actually get something out of the shows.


Jay Bo at Hamburg's Circle Culture

Berlin based Jay Bo recently held a solo show at Hamburg's Circle Culture featuring some of his most recent paintings. We lvoe his work.


NYCHOS @Fifty24SF

Fifty24SF opened Street Anatomy, a new solo show by Austrian artist Nychos a week ago last Friday night. He's been steadily filling our city with murals over the last year, with one downtown on Geary St. last summer, and new ones both in the Haight and in Oakland within the last few weeks, but it was really great to see his work up close and in such detail.

Nate Milton emailed over this great short Gator Skater which is a follow-up to his Dog Skateboard he emailed to us back in 2011... Any relation to this Gator Skater?

Matt Wagner recently emailed over some photos from The Hellion Gallery in Tokyo, who recently put together a show with AJ Fosik (Portland) called Beast From a Foreign Land.

San Francisco based Fecal Pal Jeremy Fish opened his latest solo show Hunting Trophies at LA's Mark Moore Gallery last week to massive crowds and cabin walls lined with imagery pertaining to modern conquest and obsession.


John Felix Arnold III on the Road to NYC

Well, John Felix Arnold III is at it again. This time, he and Carolyn LeBourgios packed an entire show into the back of a Prius and drove across the country to install it at Superchief Gallery in NYC. I met with him last week as he told me about the trip over delicious burritos at Taqueria Cancun (which is right across the street from FFDG and serves what I think is the best burrito in the city) as the self proclaimed "Only overweight artist in the game" spilled all the details.


FRENCH in Melbourne

London based illustrator FRENCH recently held a show of new works at the Melbourne based Mild Manners


Henry Gunderson at Ever Gold, SF

Ever Gold opened a new solo show by NYC based Henry Gunderson a couple Saturday nights ago and it was literally packed. So packed I couldn't actually see most of the art - but a big crowd doesn't seem like a problem. I got a good laugh at what I would call the 'cock climbing wall' as it was one of the few pieces I could see over the crowd. I haven't gotten a chance to go back and check it all out again, but I'm definitely going to as the paintings that I could get a peek at were really high quality and intruiguing. You should do the same.


Mario Wagner @Hashimoto

Mario Wagner (Berkeley) opened his new solo show A Glow that Transfers Creativity last Saturday night at Hashimoto Contemporary in San Francisco.


Serge Gay Jr. @Spoke Art

The paintings in the show are each influenced by a musician, ranging from Freddy Mercury, to Madonna, to A Tribe Called Quest and they are so stylistically consistent with each musician's persona that they read as a cohesive body of work with incredible variation. If you told me they were each painted by a different person, I would not hesitate to believe you and it's really great to see a solo show with so much variety. The show is fun, poppy, very well done, and absolutely worth a look and maybe even a listen.


NYCHOS Mural on Ashbury and Haight

NYCHOS completed this great new mural on the corner of Haight and Ashbury in San Francisco on Tuesday. Looks Amazing.


Sun Milk in Vienna

With rising rent in SF and knowing mostly other young artists without capitol, I desired a way to live rent free, have a space to do my craft, and get to see more of the world. Inspired by the many historical artists who have longed similar longings I discovered the beauty of artist residencies. Lilo runs Adhoc Collective in Vienna which not only has a fully equipped artists creative studio, but an indoor halfpipe, and private artist quarters. It was like a modern day castle or skate cathedral. It exists in almost a utopic state, totally free to those that apply and come with a real passion for both art and skateboarding


"How To Lose Yourself Completely" by Bryan Schnelle

I just wanted to share with you a piece I recently finished which took me 4 years to complete. Titled "How To Lose Yourself Completely (The September Issue)", it consists of a copy of the September 2007 issue of Vogue magazine (the issue they made the documentary about) with all faces masked with a sharpie, and everything else entirely whited out. 840 pages of fun. -Bryan Schnelle

The Marsh Barge - Traveling the Mississippi River from Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico

For some reason I thought it would be a good idea to quit my job, move out of my house, leave everything and travel again. So on August 21, 2013 I pushed a canoe packed full of gear into the headwaters of the Mississippi River in Lake Itasca, Minnesota, along with four of my best friends. Exactly 100 days later, I arrived at a marina near the Gulf of Mexico in a sailboat.
